Fossey Mountain Springs is a Western Riding Ranch located in the beautifully scenic area of Timahoe, Co. Laois. The ranch was dreamt up by a Laois man named Mick LaCumbre, who has a passion for horses and in particular, Western Riding. Together, with his wife Esther, Mick has developed the ranch into a Wild West of Ireland.
Ranging from one hour up to eight hours, all trails are off road through beautiful scenic woodland and open range. We offer trails to suit people with little or no horse riding experience. The more advanced rider can experience the thrill of our guided extreme trails. Any person or child without previous riding experience can also avail of our scenic trail rides as they will be accompanied by a guide on foot.
